I have been pottering away on this for the past few weeks. Probably a few more hours work before I will be happy enough to say it is complete. I'm pretty chuffed with the result so far, and I seem to be getting more to grips with oils. I have been using water based as it is easier to keep myself and my flat cleaner...and thank goodness for my trusty apron!
I have had a fantastic image in my head for the next canvas, which will be pretty darn big...and I will take the plunge and use 'proper' oils, chemicals...the whole shebang. I'm ready for it! I will continue painting nudes for the a while ...my 'muse' might not be so aware of that yet though.
This will soon be for sale on the website along with the others I have added, 3 of which are available at Art5 Gallery, Brighton.
